French airstrikes in northern Mali have killed Islamist militant Oumar Ould Hamaha, a jihadist with a $3 million U.S. government bounty on his head, Malian military sources said Friday.Two Malian military sources said Hamaha – a former member of Al-Qaeda's north African wing who later became a leader of Mali's Movement for Unity and Jihad in the Islamic Maghreb (MUJWA) – had been killed by French airstrikes.During the Islamists' 10-month rule over northern Mali, Hamaha became a spokesman for MUJWA movement that imposed strict shariah law in his hometown of Timbuktu.Paris still has about 1,600 troops in Mali trying to mop up Islamist cells in the north.
